We’re not sure what the hell DC is doing with their titles in regards to movies. They’re finally getting their shit together, but it’s taken a while. When it comes to TV, however, they seem to be doing pretty well. The pre-Batman saga Gotham looks like it could be damn good time, Arrow has been a big hit for the CW, and they’re hoping to piggyback on that success with by spinning off another beloved character in The Flash. The network has been hyping the show, and now their back with this new quick teaser, and they’ve announced another new cast member that gets us even more amped. The Kurgan himself, Clancy Brown, will play General Wade Eiling.

While this short video isn’t terribly exciting, it lays out the basic premise of the show and introduces the protagonist, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), a scientist who gets struck by lightning and gets really, really fast and uses his newfound abilities to save people.

C-3PO Channels His Inner Dark Knight In This Star Wars/Batman Mashup

fb share tweet share

Star WarsOver the last few weeks, the folks surrounding J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII and Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, two of most anticipated movies of the next few years, have been engaging in a good-natured mash-up battle. The two sides have been tweeting back and forth, sending pictures like the one of Man of Steel‘s Henry Cavill dressed in a Jedi robe with the hashtag #SuperJedi, or Episode VII star John Boyega wearing a Batman costume with the hashtag #BOYEGAMAN (which is not nearly as clever). The last salvo was a photo of Batman and R2-D2 wandering in the desert with the hashtag #Batman & R2BIN. It’s a fantastic image, and now Bad Robot has responded.

And the picture they came up with is pretty damn awesome. It shows C-3PO, wearing a black cape, squatting in the shadows on the top of a building in the manner we’ve come recognize as very Batman-ian. In the distance, shining in the night sky like the Batsignal, is the Rebel insignia. Tagged at “The C3PED CRUSADER” this has become a fun way for fans to pass the time until the two highly anticipated, highly secretive movies actually open.

The Walking Dead: Check Out The Uncensored Alternate End Of The Season 4

fb share tweet share

Though it started off a little rocky, season 4 of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is easily the best of the franchise so far, especially the second half of the season. And it ends on one hell of a cliffhanger to boot. One aspect of the season finale that garnered a lot of attention was the last line. Rick (Andrew Lincoln) says what is probably the most badass thing he’s ever said, something that makes fans of the comics have hope that he’s on his way to becoming the character he is in the Robert Kirkman’s books. But this is TV, so he can’t say exactly what most of us would in this situation, you know, censors and all, but now, in this video, you can see an alternate take. Be warned, there are swears.

Doctor Who Season 8 Preview Shows Off New Footage And Capaldi’s Inner Child

fb share tweet share

Season 8 of the BBC’s venerable sci-fi adventure Doctor Who kicks off a little less than two weeks from today—okay, it’s exactly two weeks from tomorrow, premiering on Saturday, August 23. They’ve been building up to Peter Capaldi’s 12th version of the Time Lord from Gallifrey for so long that it’s easy to forget that this will be our first real introduction to him. He popped up in the Christmas Special at the end of last year, but that was little more than a brief cameo. This new video unveils a handful of short new bits of footage from the upcoming season, and probes Capaldi’s mind about his character and his feelings on taking over such a popular, beloved character.

This footage comes from Doctor Who TV, and shows off a few new snippets. There’s nothing super exciting, but you do get a sense of the dynamic between the Doctor and his latest travelling companion Clara (Jenna Louise Coleman). We’ve known for some time that this incarnation of the character is supposedly going to be a darker version, or as they say in this video, “less light, more shade.” That fact definitely comes across in a couple of these clips.

J. Michael Straczynski Working On A Babylon 5 Feature Film For 2016

fb share tweet share

B5Ever since the show was cancelled in 1998 after five years and 110 episodes, there has been talk of bringing Babylon 5 back to your television set. The fan favorite has a rabid cult following, and for those of you out there who fall into that category, we have some great news for you. Show creator J. Michael Straczynski is working on a new script for a movie. He hopes to get a draft done in 2015, and would like to get the finished product in front of viewers eyes by 2016.

That’s all well and good and exciting, but it’s not as straightforward as it all sounds. TV Wise reports that the story is not a continuation of the events of Babylon 5, but rather a reboot of the entire concept. So what exactly does that mean? Are we going to see the same, or at least similar characters, but played by new actors? It sounds like that is a possibility, though Straczynski did express interest in reusing original cast members, like Bruce Boxleitner and Mira Furlan, if they’re game. He said, “I’d love to see Bruce as the President of the Earth Alliance.”
